No disappointments in gameplay here, but unfortunately the episode is VERY short- allow about 2–3 hours only, or if you take it slowly perhaps you may squeeze 4–5 hours- just enough for a rainy afternoon! If these episodes are going to be this short, @ fifty bucks a pop this is very expensive entertainment. I personally am not inclined to buy more episodes at this rate. Perhaps VALVE could release an extension via Steam to make up for it. The rating I'm giving it though reflects gameplay, not brevity.

"Very Good"

Half life 2 fans will want to grab this one!!! More of the same great gameplay, the REAL thinking mans shooter. The source graphics engine still looks great and runs on a pretty modest system. Check out SIN Emergence too!!!


Half-Life 2: Episode One is the first in a series of new adventures created by Valve that extend the Half-Life 2 single player experience. It details the aftermath of Half Life 2 and launches a journey beyond City 17.

Stepping into the hazard suit of Dr. Gordon Freeman, you face the immediate repercussions of your actions in City 17 and the Citadel. Rejoin Alyx Vance and her robot, Dog, to once again aid the human resistance in their desperate battle against the totalitarian alien menace of the Combine.

Episode One exposes Alyx's combat skills and knowledge of City 17. Battle side-by-side with her through Valve's first episodic game, a four-to-six hour adventure of greater density and detail than non-episodic releases.

In addition to the new single player campaign, Half-Life 2: Episode One also includes two multiplayer games. And everything you need to play is included in the box – Half-Life 2 is not required to play.

  • An all-new episode for one of the best-selling action games of all time.
  • Discover what’s become of City 17, Dr. Breen, and the G-Man.
  • Incredibly advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI).
